Jaguar and Land Rover develop technology to make the car respond to driver's mood
Jaguar and Land Rover is developing a new technology supported by Artificial Intelligence (AI) to alter cabin settings such as ambient light, heating ventilating, temperature, selecting the driver's playlist to offer improved driver wellbeing.
The technology uses a camera facing the driver along with biometric sensing monitor and evaluates the driver's mood and changes the aforementioned cabin settings. The mood-detection system will use AI techniques to adapt to the driver's facial expression.
The company is also hoping to use similar technology for the rear seat occupants. The camera and the biometric sensors will be mounted in the front headrests. If the AI detects tired and fatigue, it will dim the lights, tint the window and raise the temperature in the back.
Steve Iley, Jaguar Land Rover Chief Medical Officer, said: "As we move towards a self-driving future, the emphasis for us remains as much on the driver as it ever has.
"By taking a holistic approach to the individual driver, and implementing much of what we've learnt from the advances in research around personal wellbeing over the last 10 or 15 years, we can make sure our customers remain comfortable, engaged and alert behind the wheel in all driving scenarios, even monotonous motorway journeys."
